Travelers, especially business travelers, face challenges in keeping
answer for many of us. We want to get outdoors and run or walk
vigorously, but we have limited time and serious doubts as to where
In a place we do not know well, we find it hard to get out enough, if
at all. We have concerns about security, vehicle traffic incursions,
and other unknowns that might lead to unpleasantness. I often felt
that way during the many years I was a corporate road warrior.
However, all cities have places where one can run or walk
comfortably, with other runners and walkers around. In fact, many
cities have very enjoyable, stimulating places to run or walk.
Sightseeing and exercise can often be combined. Unfortunately,
your average travel guide book or website is of little help. What we

I researched “Fun on Foot in America’s Cities” over several years,
while a business traveler and a recreational traveler. I decided to
pin down the very best places to run in all the cities I visited and
document the best running routes in detail.
My wife Nola became enthused about this project, realizing the
benefits of spending more time outdoors in interesting places. She

Our book describes the running environments in 14 major USA
metropolitan regions and recommends the best running or walking
routes in convenient reach of where visitors tend to stay. We cover
Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Indianapolis, Los
Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, San
Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC.
We provide our own route maps, including details of everything of
importance to runners or walkers, including mileages, restrooms,
public transit access, water fountains, attractions, and great food or
beverage places to end your outing. We have checked all details
personally and,when in doubt, confirmed details with members of
the local running community.
We firmly believe that running or walking routes should be
enjoyable if we are to get outdoors more. For the cities we cover
we believe we have nailed down the outdoor exercise routes that
are definitely the most fun!
If you buy this book and are not satisfied, you can return it at any
time for a full refund (S&H excluded).
